With Irupé, you’ll experience Northeastern Argentina firsthand
Our first and huge challenge was constructing and running Irupé Lodge in the middle of the Iberá nature reserve. Based on this experience, Irupé Wildlife Tours has been born. Many satisfying and motivating feedbacks of happy guests encouraged us to not only promote the Iberá but also the whole Mesopotamia area. We always look for alternatives to conventional tours. Especially at touristic places such as the Iguazú Falls, we only push sustainable tourism offers and ideas. The care for our environment, empathy for other cultures and ways of life are part of our daily work. In the meantime, we’ve organized and enabled adventures and incisive cultural experiences for more than 2000 guests. This makes us very proud. A big thank you to each of our guests!
It would be an honor to present YOU a journey including your individual desires. It would make us happy to enable you heart touching experiences. Our team will help you to get the perfect trip and itinerary with the suitable touch of adrenaline.

The ideal starting point for excursions into the Iberá marshlands is the village of Colonia Carlos Pellegrini. At the entrance of the village that counts 500 inhabitants, you can easily find Irupé Lodge – named after a rare aquatic plant of the wetlands. The panoramic view of our park and the lake right out front, crowded with colourful birds, invites you to explore Argentina’s nature. The Lodge construction on poles ensures a natural and cosy atmosphere for unforgettably relaxing days. Moreover, the country-style designed and original rooms will help to make your holidays peaceful and exclusive.Let’s discover the Iberá Wetlands and Iguazú Falls with Irupé Lodge & Tours.
